To pay for living expenses and other costs, several different resources are available for the student desiring an education at Central Christian College of the Bible.
Central participates in the following federal programs: PELL Grants, FSEOG, Federal Subsidized and Unsubsidized Stafford student loans, and Federal PLUS loans. In addition, a limited number of on- and off-campus Federal Work-Study jobs are available to qualified students.
ELIGIBILITY AND MAINTENANCE REQUIREMENTS
- A student must be enrolled at Central Christian College of the Bible in a minimum of twelve (12) credit hours counting towards the degree program.
Any student enrolled in a co-op program which requires the student to attend an off campus institution will receive payment to cover only those hours for which the student is enrolled at Central Christian College of the Bible. A student must, however, remain full-time between the two institutions to receive any award.
If the college is not offering at least twelve (12) hours counting towards a student's bachelors degree program at Central Christian College of the Bible (sometimes occurring in one of the final two semesters of a student's undergraduate program), the student will receive payment to cover the credit hours taken at Central Christian College of the Bible even if not enrolled in the minimum of twelve (12) credit hours.
- A student is eligible for the full-tuition scholarship for hours taken up to a maximum of 150% of the number of hours required for a single degree program. For example, if a degree program requires 120 hours, the student can be eligible for the full-tuition scholarship for up to 180 hours (consistent with the federal aid requirements). This cap includes the amount of hours a student has attempted at Central as well as all credit hours transferred.
- A student must make Satisfactory Academic Progress, as defined later in the Academic Policies section of this catalog.
Application materials should be submitted as soon as possible. Students who apply earlier are more likely to be accepted.
In order to receive federal aid, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) should be completed as soon as the family's tax returns for the previous year are filed. Central's federal school code is 014619.
You will be sent an award letter listing the aid being offered after your reservation fee has been received.
There is some type of financial aid available for almost every student who attends Central Christian College of the Bible. Whether it is the benefit of the Full-Scholarship alone, or a combination of Federal, State, or private grants and loans, the Financial Aid Office will help you determine the aid for which you qualify.
Once you have been accepted to become a student at Central, it is time to begin your financial aid journey. Each step is necessary in order to reach your objective: to qualify for as much financial aid as you possibly can.
A Code of Conduct has been provided for your review. The Code of Conduct is required by the Department of Education and is followed by College's employees who participate in helping students obtain financial aid in order to defray the cost of their college education.

COST OF ATTENDANCE (COA)
The COA is the total amount it may cost a student to go to school. Central's Financial Aid Office figures what the COA will be for each academic year. This includes more than what one might pay at registration. COA may include, as mandated by the Department of Education: Tuition & Fees, Books & Supplies, Transportation, Personal Miscellaneous Expenses, Room & Board, and Dependent Care. For costs that a student might incur at registration, please check the Admissions tab on our website and go to COSTS. This will give you a the actual charges a student may incur at registration.
For a complete listing of all items that make up Central's COA, including the average amount spent by our student body on transportation and personal miscellaneous expenses please see Central's Financial Aid Handbook, page 11.
